EU Blue Card - Belgium

About visa :

European blue card is a work permit for foreign highly qualified workers. In order to obtain the European Blue Card, an employer must first apply to the competent regional Belgium authority to acquire a provisional work authorization.

The competent regional authority will grant a provisional work authorization when the following conditions are met:

  • The employer must have concluded with the worker an employment contract of indefinite duration or for a period of at least one year.
  • The gross annual compensation paid by the employer to the employee must be at least €49,995.
  • The worker must hold a diploma of higher education from a post-secondary course program of at least three years.
  • The diploma certificate must be issued by a higher education institution recognized by the state in which it is located.

Features:

  • The European Blue Card is issued by the EU member states. It presents a dual advantage: the employer must request a work authorization only for the first two years, and the worker receives a single document with dual residence and work authorization.
  • Moreover, with the European Blue Card it becomes easier for the worker's family to obtain residence authorization.
  • The European Blue Card is a new tool for employers to employ highly skilled foreign employees. It is a response to the desire to harmonize the different national work and residence permits of EU member states.
